Bruises in White
Andriana Mallory Curtis was an ambitious seventeen year old with dreams of walking the runway for the most famous designers, not just because she loved that particular spotlight or the fact that just thinking about it gets her overly excited, but it was also a chance to take care of her adoptive parents for a change. It was on one such moments of that adrenaline rush that she collided into Sebastian De la Vega.
He was definitely not a calculated plan in her future but how could she ignore an unsteady heart if it made her legs wobbly and head left muddled? Even though she had insecurities that she was way out of his league and reading more into things that were not, it did not stop her from saying yes to an invitation to his home... a pretty intimidating family of six who for reasons known to them alone, are protective of the last son. A turn of unforeseen situations occur and Andriana was on a path to learn that dreams could be shattered in the blink of an eye and that family- his family, outweighed her concept of love especially when Giovanni had always made sure she knew that from the start. To swear that the day she met Sebastian was a day to curse would be partially untrue...
Years later, having his whole family depend on her to save their first son and beloved daughter was not one she foresaw. Their remorse, regret- whatever each of them labelled it as, was the last thing she sought because she was done with the De la Vega family and done with Seb even though she had a precious part of them...a precious part of him with her... But was she really?
